Trace Calverley, the Creative Director of NorthStar Signs and Graphics started his design career in the late seventies. He ventured into trade-show graphics and sign design and manufacturing in 1999 with the launch of Color Imaging & Design and later re-branded to Colorit Graphic Services in McKinney, Texas which has been in operation for 20 years.
In 2018, Trace felt there was a need for a professional design and sign company in the Grayson County and surrounding area. After acquiring NorthStar Signs and re-branding it as NorthStar Signs and Graphics, it is now the largest design, digital printing, and sign company in the Texoma area.
Goodwill Industries of NE Texas first commissioned NorthStar Signs and Graphics to create new signs for our outlet location. During our design meetings we got to explain Goodwill’s mission and vision for Grayson County and surrounding areas. Trace immediately made the decision to donate all of his design time to our projects.
Trace has not only donated countless design hours he also discounts the materials used in the projects. Trace has also helped us create new logos and branding that will be used as a rebranding throughout the organization. Year to date NorthStar Signs has donated a total of $31,455 in design time.
